Hotel 71 Dhaka Reviews
Affordable hotel near the business district and also shopping area. Oct 10, 2011
Whether its for Business or for Vacation, Travel 71 is strategically located to give you easy access to both. It is a new hotel (opened in 2010), therefore everything is still shiny and polished.
The website advertises high rates, but you can easily get a good discount my emailing them. The hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. Typical room price including breakfast, taxes and service charge will start from US$ 35.00 - US$ 100.00
Upon revisiting the hotel and hosting a guest it in for several days, I have to add that although it is a clean and new hotel, the service is not very good. Their airport-pickup is not very reliable, response to request not very prompt. Both of my guests had trouble finding the pick up transport and one of them had to complain 3 times before his room's wired internet connection was fixed.
I would suggest anybody staying in this hotel to be firm about the requests and ask for specific time when the issue will be resolved. Also it is helpful to have the hotel and possibly the pick-up car's drivers mobile number in advance if you are using this service. They will charge about $20 per trip to and from the airport.
They have a top-floor restaurant with good view. The food is decent, you may try the local dishes which I found pretty good. Be very specific if you want to avoid spicy food because spice is the norm in Bangladesh
